A MFT Sketch and Color Throwndown Creation!

There are so many challenges out there that I really wish I had more time to play along with, but this weekend I was able to sit down and create one card that qualifies for two super fun challenges! Each week My Favorite Things hosts a fabulous sketch challenge on their Blog and the MFT Member Company Forum on SCS. It seems that each week I copy the sketch and book mark the entry thread but time runs away from me before I get the sketch completed leaving my desk in pieces of a to be competed MFT card! Here is this weeks sketch that I got the chance to finally play along with!Each week I also write down and save the newest Color Throwdown Challenge, these ladies make the nicest color combinations and they always seem to make me pull out colors I never seem to touch. This weeks colors included More Mustard, Elegant Eggplant/Perfect Plum, Wild Wasabi, and Early Espresso. I don't actually think I own most of these colors, but what I did was pull colors that I thought were very close to the shade and work with them, I think this combo was a bit of a stretch for me, but I really did enjoy challenging myself on this one.

I inked up this adorable little girl image from My Favorite Things called Being Cute is What I do, this little girl just makes me smile! I love her little pig tails and I thought that she would look great in a paper pieced top so I used some of the paper from the Echo Park Springtime DP I also used the same paper for the background of this card. I pulled out some fun Mat Arts linen ribbon and created a big bow and of course since I got the mini rolled rose die, so it HAD to be used!

I had a lot of fun getting the chance to play along with some super fun challenges this weekend, I am hoping that this chance will occur more often. I hope you like today's card and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
